Foreplay: Turning Up the Heat
Foreplay is everything that gets you in the mood for sexual intercourse… Kissing is foreplay. Flirting and intimate conversations are foreplay.
So is oral sex. Touching, hugging, playing games – almost everything that’s sexual, except for penetrative sex, can be described as foreplay.
In fact, the word ‘foreplay’ is misleading, because it suggests that sexual intercourse is the main dish on the menu and the build-up is just the starter.
Not true! Foreplay is sex. You can enjoy it on its own, and it doesn’t have to lead to intercourse. Foreplay is equally important as intercourse, and sometimes even more so. Women don’t usually enjoy sexual intercourse without some foreplay first. It also makes it much more enjoyable for men.
Almost anything you do with your partner that feels sexy is a kind of foreplay, but here are some of the most common ones.
Flirting can be very sexy, and it doesn’t have to lead to anything. Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you can’t still flirt with your partner, and take it further by talking while you’re kissing and touching each other. Tell them what you like, what you want them to do, what you’d like to do to them. Use your imagination! Language can build intimacy as much as touch.
Don’t be in a hurry to get naked. Undressing in front of your partner can be a big turn-on for both of you – the slower the better. Or enjoy taking your partner’s clothes off and showing them how much you love their body.
